Delhi Gives Sweaters to Its Stray Dogs to Help Them Stay Warm This Winter! Check out Pics

It’s the middle of December, and people all over the country have taken their cosy winter clothes out of the wardrobe. Especially in the Northern parts of India, winter has really set in, accounting for shorter, colder days and longer, chillier nights.

Even as humans wrap themselves up in shawls, sweaters and winterwear of all types, it is strays like dogs who have to suffer.

But not in Delhi.

NGOs like House of Stray Animals have come forward to help stray dogs stay warm in winters. Donating woollen blankets, sweaters and even beds, they are helping their furry friends stay comfortable during the cold months.

And if you think these are discarded human sweaters left on the streets for dogs, think again.

Speaking to The Times of India, Niyati, who works with HAS, shares, “Some of my friends and I are getting together on the weekends to cut and sew old sweaters, and then turn them into dog sweaters. We will be making around 25 of these in different sizes and will put it on dogs at the shelter.”

Kaveri Rana, president of the NGO ‘People for Animals’, says, “Earlier, we used to put jackets and sweaters on stray dogs across the city but realised that it becomes a nuisance for them as they get entangled in barbed wire, or get stuck in car bumpers under which they may sleep. There have been a number of accidents because of sweaters, so now we only put them on abandoned dogs who are living with me or around me, whom I meet every day and take care of.”
